Dance, Takei, Dance!

Every fan of Star Trek is familiar with Hikaru Sulu – George Takei in real life. The American actor (born of Japanese parents) has reprised the beloved character in every single Star Trek movie that featured characters from the original series. He has even guest starred in an episode of Voyager. Outside of film and television, Sulu is known for his philanthropic works, particularly with human rights and Japanese-American relations. He even has an Asteroid named after him. What many may not know, is that Takei is also an accomplished dancer. The world over sat in astonishment and delight as Takei filmed and shared is magnificently expressive ‘Happy Dance’. That isn’t the last of public dances, thankfully. Takei made an appearance at the Cincinnati Oktoberfest where he joined others on the stage and helped lead the chicken dance. Fortunately, the act was caught on camera and now the world and future generations can watch the exquisitely executed dance over and over again.

About Alora DeVeau

Amanda, the writer behind Alora DeVeau is a 43 year old woman who has been a fan of Star Trek for as far back as she can remember. She began her foray into roleplaying with White Wolf table top games back in 1996, and her experience with PBEMs began in 1999 with a Dragonriders of Pern game. She has written and roleplayed in a variety of scenarios including original fantasy games, Dungeons and Dragons, and Amber Diceless. She found SB118 back in 2013 while looking for a Star Trek PBEM that could withstand the test of time. It's complex world-building structure and longevity encouraged her to take the plunge, and she only wishes she could have found the group sooner. She is a happily married homeschooling mom to four children, and also a servant to three cats.
